This EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is for tapping to release the fear in a relationship. You could do it in a phone or Zoom session with me or try it yourself. If need be, refresh your memory as to the tapping points here Emotional Freedom Technique. Here is a protocol that may be helpful in working with the fear:
Even though I might not understand what holds me back from finding and staying in a fully loving relationship I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I think I’m ready for a relationship, and it isn’t here, so I must not be ready, I forgive and honor myself.
ET some unknown thing is holding me back from having and keeping my desired relationship, I’m ready to move forward.
This fear I’m hiding from myself
I just don’t know
It’s so frustrating
Why do I pretend to myself I don’t know?
I’m so confused
I’m so frustrated
I just can’t seem to get it right
Even though I don’t have a healthy relationship (or any relationship), I completely love and accept myself
Even though I want to be emotionally healthy in a relationship, and I’m afraid, I forgive and honor myself.
Even though I’m struggling to keep (or create) a healthy relationship, I’m working on it right this minute.
